On her Instagram page, the mother of two posted a candid post about how she learned to love an unplanned child.
The recognition of Olivia Bowens provoked a strong reaction among Internet users and provoked a new wave of controversies on the difficulties of motherhood.
In her story, Olivia admitted that she always wanted children, but didn’t plan to become a mother at 21.
At that time, she was in her final year of studies. Therefore, her head was occupied with her studies and plans for the future, but not with thoughts of motherhood.
In just a few days, the post gained nearly 15,000 likes and hundreds of comments. Bowens herself did not think her confession would provoke such a reaction.
She was particularly struck by the negative and critical comments from users. She was accused of hatred for children, of aversion to them.
They called her a bad mother, a selfish person who had no maternal feelings. Fortunately, among the enemies, there were those who understood his desire. It was mainly women who recognized themselves in Olivia.
They too had to face a difficult choice. And they completely understand what Bowens was going through. Olivia brought up a relevant topic worth discussing.
After all, things in life don’t always go as planned. And there are many people in the world who, at a certain stage in their lives, were not going to become parents.
But it happened. And in the process, they realized they had done the right thing. That’s exactly what Olivia was trying to convey when she wrote a moving post about how she fell in love with a girl, whose birth she didn’t plan.
